"the washington post" had a little bit. cbs evening news had a story friday night. but i have been thinking about this, bill, and i have come up with three possibilities for why they could ignore the story for as long as they did. one of them is they just didn't think it was news now, if you don't think that a presidential advisor president says green jobs is important. he was the green jobs guy who signs a petition calling for investigation into whether george bush was involved in 9/11. i mean, that's psychotic. and if the "new york times" doesn't think that's news, then they are not journalists over there. the second possibility, i think, is more realistic. and that is that they looked at the story and they said: this is a story drummed up by crazy right wingers, you know? no names necessary. and they hate that. what they really hate are conservatives. so, if conservatives care about it, they don't care about it. the third possibility is simple. maybe they were just looking out for their guy. they
